Scrapbook Soup! Advent Frames and more!

Hello friends
Firstly something totally unrelated to Christmas!
This is a scrapbook layout that I created for Spellbinders™  and I was thrilled to see that it has been
featured on a US craft show called Scrapbook Soup.  And even more thrilling...
Stacey Caron - President of Spellbinders™  is the lady demonstrating it!
The full video can be viewed here and my project pops up
at about 7 minutes 30 seconds into the video.
Oh yes, the sad looking little girl in the photo is...me!
NEWSFLASH...it appears that the video my have disappeared :(
I think they get updated each week but I will try to find a link ....
Also, all the instructions and products for this scrapbook page can be found here.

Next up some VELCRO® news!
I've been in touch with the company regarding those slim VELCRO® pads and they are
due to be launched over here next month but...I've got quite a few packs on their way to me which
I will most definitely want to give away so more news on that soon.

As December is so speedily approaching it will not be long before we start to open our
Advent Calendars.  I perhaps should mention I have just one Advent Frame kit left!
It proved very successful and thank you to all those who purchased.
If anyone would like the lonely last kit... please email or click on the 'Kits and Bits' button.
(A few frames on their own are still available)
Last Sunday's Advent frame class went well and Sally who attended
went away with a further kit to make an Advent Calendar for her grandchildren.
She had the idea of creating an outer decorative frame with the
grandchildren's names but made it detachable for easy storage,
 and, of course, if she felt like changing the colour one year.
And...guess what she used to make it detachable.....VELCRO!
Thank you Sally for sending over the photo - I love seeing all your creations.
Today is Christmas Plaque class - more photos coming soon.
Take care friends - have a lovely weekend.

Hi Christine, sweet little photo on scrapbook page, oh it's you, how lovely. Sally did a wonderful job of her Advent Frame, I too decorated mine and used Velcro to attach them, easier to remove for packing away after Christmas.

Morning Christine, Shame about the video, that would have been really interesting. Fantastic job Sally, with your Advent Frame, it is so beautiful. Gorgeous scrapbook layout, Christine, you look divine.
It is my 30th wedding anniversary today and I am still recovering from the dreaded heavy cold/nearly flu symptoms, so not going to be doing much sadly.
I can't wait to get those Velcro small fastenings, I have 2 enveloboxes that I made for cards, that would really benefit from the velcro as a closure. Have a lovely weekend.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
